Seahawks don’t make much of Earl Thomas’ obscene gesture

If Earl Thomas has played his final game with the Seahawks, the lasting image will be of the safety making an obscene gesture toward the Seattle sideline as he rode toward the locker room on a cart.

“I don’t know anything about that,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said when asked about the gesture, via Brady Henderson of ESPN. “It’s a big stadium. I don’t know where it was aimed at. Earl was extraordinarily poised on the field. For what just occurred to be so clear and so resolved to — he knew what happened. But he was so poised and giving back to the players and all of us. So I don’t know what happened after that.”

Thomas fractured his lower leg in the second half Sunday. It was similar to the season-ending fracture in the same leg in December of 2016. Thomas tweeted about retirement after that injury.

This time, he expressed his emotion in a different way.

“I think we play a very, very emotional game, and I think sometimes you’ve got to allow people to have their emotions, have their feelings,” Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner said. “Last time he got hurt like this, he retired, and obviously he didn’t retire. So you’ve got to let guys have their emotions. I don’t think nothing of [Thomas’ raised middle finger Sunday]. I think he has a long road ahead of him if it’s the injury that he suspects. We’re going to have his back and we’re going to support him and we’re going to be here for him.”

Thomas held out all offseason in a contract dispute, returning after the preseason. He had requested the Seahawks either give him an extension or trade him.

Thomas then sat out two practices before last week’s game against Dallas to protect himself from injury as he seeks a new deal. He still made two interceptions against the Cowboys.

But Carroll said after the last-play victory over the Cardinals on Sunday that the Seahawks and Thomas were in a “good place.”

“That’s why it’s so bittersweet,” Carroll said. “We had just turned things around and everything was going in a really positive direction and all of that, so it breaks my heart that we’re talking about this right now.”

Thomas becomes a free agent in the offseason, and the odds seem good that he will play elsewhere next season.

  1. He’s gone. They know it.

    They saw it. They just aren’t going to make things worse by reacting to it

    Nevertheless, Pete should have been classy about it and acknowledged it rather than play dumb.

    Wagner hit that note. Pete should take notes.

  2. Are we even sure he was flipping off his team?

    Maybe there was a rude fan over there.

    Need to hear it from Earl.

    Not believing the media, ever!

  3. The Seahawks are a twenty first century lesson in the NFL. Looked like they could have won multiple super bowls, and then everyone on that defense wanted their piece of the pie. A lesson on why you shouldn’t pay these me first egomaniacs. The Giants will regret it with Odell Beckham just like the Seahawks did with the legion of bust.

  4. Thomas has been payed roughly $38Million by the Seahawks. Dude has some seriously messed up perspective on life if he indeed was flipping the bird to the sidelines. You’re rich forever, and if you are even a little bit smart, your entire family is rich forever. Emotions or not, that was classless and disgraceful.

  5. Teammates surround the guy and pray for him. Then he gives the middle finger. Actions like this give Christians a bad rep.
    I can respect a man wanting to get paid but that kind of gesture is unnecessary

  6. If he was directing it at Seahawks coaching or management then he’s a spoiled schmuck. He has a contract that he agreed to just a few years ago. Be a man of your word and fulfill your contract, Earl.

  7. Earl looks classless here. Wonder if he put everything into practicing like he did game days if this would’ve happened…Who knows. All I know is you can be in your house and try catch your cell phone and cut your arm on a knife in the kitchen be done. Or you can play 15 years and not miss a game…our just a have non contact injury and it be a career ender…everything happens for a reason.

  8. If he had a spine then Thomas would have been sitting at home instead of lying in a heap on the field. Caved into his greed and his need for the almighty dollar.

    I dont care for LeVeon Bell but at least he has the testicular fortitude to stick to his guns.

    So long Earl, its been fun listening to you whine the last eight years.

  9. So, in the last 2 weeks, he took a bow towards the Cowboys bench and today he flipped off his own team. I would say, he might not have many teams calling him when he gets healthy.

  10. The Seahawks played this right and are thanking their lucky stars they didn’t give him an extensions with a bunch of guarantees. It would have been great for Thomas, but bad for the seahawks and their fan to have so much money tied up to a player who won’t be contributing.

  11. I guess none of us has ever been disrespected to the point we felt like responding back. Thomas is a great player. Philly, Baltimore and Arizona could use his great play.

  12. I think Earl knew that he was really fragile before he held out, and that was why he wanted to make about 50 million guaranteed through a new contract and then ride off into the sunset.

    Karma’s a B though…

    flipping off the people and organization that gave you the opportunity and helped make you the superstar that you are… it’s despicable.

    I’m a Seahawk fan and it’s team first… when it all boils down there are no names on the back. Tired of the guys who only care about themselves.

    The Seahawks learned their lesson with Kam Chancellor…sorry Earl. That was a B move.

  13. Can’t believe I have wasted 5 years following these guys. Jumped on the wagon cuz I thought it was gonna he something special. Now, like the rest of the Hawk fans, I need to find a new bandwagon. Probably gonna cheer for the Rams now. Let’s go Goff!

  14. It’s not about being rich forever. I make more than enough money at my profession to provide for me and mine, and then some. But I am always looking to earn more. I could easily go to work every day, not try to get more money, not lobby for raises and bonuses, but that would be accepting a plateau.If you aren’t trying to get more, regardless of your profession, then you have accepted your plateau, and I feel sorry for you for missing out. ET3 was trying to do what anyone who is properly motivated will do, get more.

  15. Anyone who calls Le’veon Bell greedy should look at this injury and see what it will cost Thomas. The Steelers are beginning to see what life is like without Bell and it’s not so great.

  16. The NFL is the one pro sport where being lucky enough to ‘make it’ is not so clear cut. Between concussions and no guaranteed contracts, players are forced to make tough choices. Is Leveon Bell being selfish? Hell yeah, look at what just happened to Earl Thomas. This pro sport makes more money than the rest of pro sports combined, but they never fail to treat their product(the players) like dirt. It doesn’t take a whole lot of genius to figure out who Earl Thomas was flipping off. And he is dead on absolutely correct.

    Nail on the head.

    2 years ago he broke the same leg in the same spot….and refused to get it fixed properly like the team wanted him to. It’s an easy fix, you put a rod in and it never, ever breaks again. End of story. Instead he wanted to do his holistic pseudoscience bs because he thought he knew better than the team doctors.

    The team knew it was a matter of time before it broke again because it wasn’t fixed properly the first time. Already an injury risk, he then skipped offseason workouts and training camp, and then started skipping practices, only to enter NFL games not in proper shape. Of course it broke again.

    You put up with a lot of bs for a special player. Carl Eller, Lawrence Taylor, Charles Haley, etc. A healthy Earl Thomas is a special player. But the second they aren’t worth putting up with anymore, you cut that cancer out.

    It’s a non-displaced clean fracture. If he actually follows standard treatment, he’ll be healthy in time for the playoffs. It will be interesting to see if they just shut him down or not. Probably depends on if he gets proper treatment or not.

  18. I am sorry but I will never feel sorry for a person that we don’t NEED. Doctors… Nurses, military, law enforcement, fire fighters, EMT, I feel sorry when we lose one of them…. An over paid game player…. EFF that crap…. Be gone with you….

    No. Even when you are disrespected you have a choice … the low or the high road. Thomas took the low road regardless if everybody in the free world agreed with why he did what he did. It won’t change that fact one bit.

    The Seahawks are better with him than without. His pending FA departure in and of itself is payback. He’s acting like a fool if it’s true about his gesture.

    =========================
    None of which is an excuse for flipping off the team. Agree or disagree with him wanting more all you want. The reality is he’s throwing a fit because he was told no. Keep wanting more. Just be prepared to find it somewhere else and don’t take it personally. I suspect you’d find another job if the end goal was to keep getting more. Just sayin.

    In an NFL where every player could “get paid” you’d probably be correct. Unfortunately reality just rang the door bell.

  22. IF Pete wasn’t an idiot and had run Beast mode for the SB winning TD, that would’ve been 2 in a row going for 3. That play tore the team a part. They had dynasty ( 3 SB in 4 years is the mark) talent but an idiot coach and still do.

  23. Robert37, pretty sure the Ravens are quite happy with Eric Weddle, Tony Jefferson, and Anthony Levine as their top 3 safeties right now, all 3 of them made big plays tonight.

  24. That break cost him 10’s of millions of dollars. He wouldnt of gotten a record breaking deal due to his age but it would of been close, now he is likely either taking a steep discount or is signing a 1yr “Bet on Yourself” $8M-$9M range type deal. Some team is going to get a sweet deal on ET, he still has atleast 2yrs of elite play left in him but no one is going to pay him top safety $$$ coming off that injury w/ multiple serious injuries over the 3yrs.

  25. the conduct of Earl Thomas this year will hurt his value next year because those things matter when a player (especially a defensive back) is injury riddled and in the 30 year old range

    Thomas, Thomas, Thomas…

    The teams dump players every year with 2, 3 or more years on contracts “recently agreed upon”

    *AND NEVER PAY THE PLAYERS ANOTHER CENT*

    All players, GMs and agents know the guarantees are all that matters… and this chap had none (other than this year’s salary)

    So how do you feel when a team cuts a player from a contract that the team signed?

  28. I love seeing the Seahawks implode. They were a nasty arrogant bunch and Carroll allowed them the freedom to act like bullies. So — he deserves everything he gets from guys like Earl Thomas.
    Giving him and the rest of the Seahawks the middle finger as he was carted off was a classless act by Thomas but I would expect nothing less from a Pete Carroll player.

  29. >>>So how do you feel when a team cuts a player from a contract that the team signed?<<<

    They cut them at times when that very same contract allows them to. That player and agent agreed to what was written in that contract before signing it. Works the same with players in certain circumstances. Even Bell is playing by the rules of the CBA so it's hard to feel bad for any player or team when what's being done has been agreed to by both parties.

  30. I actually believe Pete Carroll when he said he knew nothing about it. He seems like such a moron that he was really didn’t know what was going on and was too busy pacing back and forth and chewing his hubba bubba into saw dust.

  31. I heard this morning that one game check for Thomas is $500k. I also read and heard a lot
    on how his contract dispute is about his security. Surely these players can take some portion of their check and purchase insurance for disability and catastrophic injury on their own? I know I that I did.

  32. What a lack of leadership. Carroll could be down in Seattle, and he made his own bed. All that immaturity and arrogance is all coming home to roost.

    ————————————————————————————–

    Players know that their signing bonus is the only guaranteed money they get unless otherwise specified in their contracts. So I have no problem with a team cutting a guy before his contract is up.
    Plus — how do you feel when a player is paid big bucks and then he gets hurt and is lost for a season or more?
    My point is this is a two-way street and there are risks on both sides of it.

    Here’s what I hope — I hope the players go on strike after the present agreement expires. And I hope it’s a long strike. I want all of them (owners and players) to go without the millions they make and get a hard dose of reality.

  34. Spin this all you want, there is no winner here.

    Earl’s career may be over. At the very least, he’ll never be what he was. And he’ll be fortunate to see another big payday.

    Pete can’t trade him, and lost the best S in football, and his very first draft pick, the beginning of his program.

  35. earl thomas is severely overrated…he has shown to be an avg. s without big kam back there.

  36. Earl you were good in your prime. Your old now and not worth a long term contract.
    Fracturing your leg on a basic tackle is a shame, but why act like a buffoon? Oh, you feel you have been mistreated making over 60 million as a Seahawk. Well tough… Welcome to the business of the NFL. Your not that special and all fans will have an ending view of you flipping off whoever as you were carted off the field. Bye Bye Earl.

  37. Guys on here telling him he was good in his prime and he has three interceptions in the first four games of the season. The logic on here isn’t very good, but what do you expect from PFT posters?

    What? This is ludicrous. Tell me, are you willing to take less money at your job so that the company can do better? Or if a competitor to your company offered you massively more money for doing exactly the same job, that you wouldn’t take it? Lets not conflate the issue here. Earl wanted to get paid. The Seahawks wouldn’t pay him. Earl Thomas, over his career, has made $55,908,106 pre-tax, pre-commission in 9 seasons of play. Tax is gonna wipe out about half of that, so $27,000,000. Take out the 4-10% agent fee, lets say on the conservative end 6%. Thats another 1.6M gone. So he’s down to $25M take home.

    Now, according to this article from 2011, top players pay $6000+ a month on their own health and training regimen. That’s likely gone up in the past 7 years, but we’ll stick with $6000. In Earl Thomas’ career then, he’s spent $648,000 on training. Now we’re down to just over $24M take home. Over 9 years, thats under $2.7M a year take home pay. Still a lot of money by your or my standards, but compare that to what Paul Allen, his team’s owner, makes. He’s the richest NFL owner by far with $20.9B net worth. Kroenke is second with $8B.

    Why would you dump on Earl for wanting to be paid more? He ISN’T getting paid more and the Seahawks still suck, so its not like they’d have been way better if they just weren’t paying Earl more. And the only team thats been consistently great for the past 20 years has been the Pats. So again, this isn’t ‘oh look what happens when you pay people!’ This has been happening to every team in the NFL for the history of the NFL. Dynasties outside of the Pats don’t exist in the NFL since free agency and the salary cap. It sounds more like sour grapes that your team hasn’t won anything or jealousy that this guy is making a boat load more money than you ever will, but without the intellectual honesty to zoom out little to see the entire picture to gain context into what he’s really asking for. Any money not paid to him goes into the owner’s pockets. An owner that makes more money in interest per year than this team pays its entire roster.

  41. The hypocritical posts above, certainly not all but many, leave me shaking my head.

    1. The guy suffered his second broken leg, this one going into free agency.

    2. No one can say he doesn’t play hard.

    3. He made a classless gesture when he was in physical and emotional pain. I wouldn’t give a complete pass but certainly it’s understandable.

    4. Please just stop complaining about guys wanting to get paid. I won’t name him but one Seattle fan above that went into a diatribe about greedy players lives on Patriots threads calling Belichick cheap and the Pats cheaters. With the exception of Mankins and Vinatieri, Belichick moved guys, even stars, that didn’t feel they were being compensated fairly. It takes two to have a contract dispute.

  42. Earl signed the contract because that’s it was a good deal under the current CBA. I don’t think it’s very hard to fathom how contracts increase each year. With that being said, it made sense at that time before he outplayed his current contract. The only thing he asked for was a long-term deal and to be treated fairly after all he’s given to the organization.

  43. The Seahawks are a twenty first century lesson in the NFL. Looked like they could have won multiple super bowls, and then everyone on that defense wanted their piece of the pie. A lesson on why you shouldn’t pay these me first egomaniacs. The Giants will regret it with Odell Beckham just like the Seahawks did with the legion of bust.

    They are 1 of only 3 teams that have been to multiple Super Bowls in last 5 years.

    New England and Denver fans are the only ones with freeness of speech to take shots here.

  44. Aarons 444, he’s a Seahawks fan. We know him well on Pats threads. He was a whiner when the Bruins beat the Canucks back in 2011. That’s the equivalent of complaining if the Jets won a super bowl having not won one since Namath.

    I’ll give him credit for perseverance. Most Patriots haters get exhausted and give up sooner or later.

    =====

    Its hard to difficult to argue that he outplayed his contract.

    He was #3 at his position this year; #1 (Devin McCourty) only makes $1.5mil more.

    The market for safeties just isn’t that strong.

    He was clamoring for Eric Berry money, but it might not have been there for the taking.

  46. I’ve never seen anything like this before. They won a Super Bowl with a rookie QB. That’s every team’s dream and they should have been set for a long run. But instead of counting their lucky stars for their good fortune and building on it every single “leader” on that defense took Wilson’s presence as some sort of insult. And Carroll did absolutely nothing to try and fix anything. He literally treated the O and D like totally separate teams.

  47. Aarons 444, he’s a Seahawks fan.
    =====

    I’m a Packers fan.

    I live in Seattle, and get a huge kick out of the Carroll haters.

    And most of all, I’ve never met a Patriot fan not worth of firing shots over their bow.

    So by all means, carry on……

  48. Honestly I can understand the frustration with earl’s contract, he wanted to make more and was upset to get the tag. In the end, he caved in and showed up to play, now when he did that he was agreeing to the rate of pay and was expected to conduct he self like a professional. Missing practices was unacceptable and then flipping off the sideline even if it wasn’t directed toward his teammates was horrid. Just moment s before teammates were circled up praying for him which was a pretty emotional and sobering moment should have been the story to be covered not the Judas digit. Just goes to show you how bad things had gotten with Thomas and the team.

I just don’t understand all that the same ol’ same ol’ “legion of bust” comments…so boring and stale….the”legion of bust” took Seattle to the playoffs 5 straight years and back to back Superbowls. That’s two more SB’s than some teams have been to in the history of the NFL. The LOB fell apart because of money and injuries, even if you hate the Seahawks you have to admit that was an impressive defense, unless you know nothing about football.

    =========================
    And yet inexplicably there are players making <$2 million per year that somehow manage. $24 million take home … give me a break already. Good luck finding any employee making on par or more than the president of the company. We could certainly have a discussion on the merits of that for sure but in the end you're suspending reality to have that conversation.

    People are dumping on ET for acting like a whiny baby. Period. There's an argument to be made he's made a ton of money already but in the end it's his behavior drawing the most ire.

    And no the unspent money does not go into the pocket of Allen. The CBA makes certain that isn't the case as every player gets paid from the same pool of money. It's entirely more accurate to say the money ET wants to be paid has already been spent on another player (I.e. Wilson). Adding context to point out Allen makes $billions is completely the wrong context to be adding.

A lesson on why you shouldn’t pay these me first egomaniacs. The Giants will regret it with Odell Beckham just like the Seahawks did with the legion of bust.

    Aarons 444, he’s a Seahawks fan. We know him well on Pats threads. He was a whiner when the Bruins beat the Canucks back in 2011. That’s the equivalent of complaining if the Jets won a super bowl having not won one since Namath.

    I’ll give him credit for perseverance. Most Patriots haters get exhausted and give up sooner or later.

    He was just holding up the number “1”.

    As in: One fan left on the 12s bandwagon…

    ^^^^^^

    wow, that was weak…..you would have been better off going with the same boring “Legion of Bust” comments all the other haters use.

  60. Try to get your boss to pay you 25% of your next 4 years salary ahead of time.
    Try to get her to guarantee 65% of the money you’re due over the next 4 years.

    When you find this fantastic boss be sure to pretend you are underpaid in year 4 because you are your ‘yearly salary’ is really just the 75% left after that interest free loan you were given 4 years ago.

    Fans don’t care about greedy players.

    Right, because they sure have a lot in common with the 1%’ers that own the world 1,000x over…..

    That break cost him 10’s of millions of dollars.

    —————–

    Unlikely. If he actually agrees to normal, standard medical treatment like he should have 2 years ago, he’ll be healthy enough to play by Jan and it will never ever break again. 2 things might have cost him though…

    #1) His own behavior. Nobody wants a cancer.

    #2) The Eric Berry contract blowing up in the Chiefs face.
